The need for circular conversion is great in many industries, not least in the automotive industry and for mobility in society at large. Electrification and circular economy are two factors that are of great relevance.
The aim of The circular car (pre-study) is to build tangible visions enabling Sweden having a circularly adapted car fleet with fossil free and climate neutral transports in 2045. With a systemic approach to the circular car, and with engaged actors from the whole value chain, including e.g. manufacturing, cars sharing actors, and users (private and public), we consider it possible to contribute to acceleration of the circular transition and in the process, support new and established actors. The effect can be to enable necessary and disruptive changes to meet current and future climate and environmental challenges and to reduce vulnerability and resource challenges in the value chains.
The circular car (pre-study) has the ambition to build a solid base for a step 2 project, which in turn will have the strength and capacity to help realization of the circular car value chain. The overall goal of a step 2 will be to develop of a systemic concept of the future passenger car fleet that is adapted for a higher utilization rate and for which long use and recirculation of products and materials is standard practice.
